rncbc.org announces Qtractor v0.6.6 - "Lazy Tachyon" Beta Release for Linux


rncbc.org has announced a beta release of Qtractor v0.6.6, the "Lazy Tachyon" release.

Qtractor is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++ with the Qt4 framework. Target platform is Linux, where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) for audio and the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) for MIDI are the main infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.


  • LV2 and VST plugins GUI position persistence (NEW).
  • MIDI clip editor record/overdub note rendering (FIX).
  • VST plugin recursive discovery/search path (NEW).
  • VST-shell sub-plugins support (FIX).
  • also some old and new lurking bugs squashed.

Qtractor is free, open-source Linux Audio software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.

I very much luvs me some Qtractor, but I wish the Timeline was switchable between Bars/Beats and Hours/Minutes/Seconds; for the purpose of recording podcasts and other long-form non-music audio recordings.

I submitted this as a feature request once before, and the answer was kinda "no".
